Now is usually a quiet time on the global golf calendar, but the PGA of America has been making plenty of noise this November.
After recent news that Olympic Club (2028 US PGA, 2032 Ryder Cup) and Valhalla (2024 PGA) will host future events, the Philadelphia Inquirer is reporting that Aronimink Golf Club is set to host the 2027 US PGA Championship and the 2020 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship. A formal announcement is expected overnight, Australian time.
The prestigious club, designed by Donald Ross and listed 78th in US Golf Digest’s latest ranking of America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses, is being restored by Gil Hanse and Jim Wagner. The work is expected to be finished for next year’s BMW Championship on the US PGA Tour.
This is not Aronimink’s first time on the Major scene, previously hosting the 1962 PGA Championship, 1977 US Amateur and 2003 Senior PGA Championship. More recently, it held the 2010 and 2011 AT&T National.
With the announcement, the US PGA Championship will be locked in for 10 of the next 13 years. The Wanamaker will visit Bellerive for the tournament’s 100th anniversary next year, the last time the event will be held in August before switching to May from 2019.
